If I Was… - Midge Ure; Robin Eggar;

Virgin, 2004, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Midge Ure’s remarkable career spans four decades. By the time his single ‘If I Was’ went to No. 1 in 1985, he had already crammed several musical lifetimes into a 10-year professional career with Slik, The Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage and Ultravox — not forgetting being at the centre of two of music’s most historic moments: Band Aid and Live Aid. As an artist he has received both Ivor Novello and Grammy awards. As well as fronting huge chart successes with hits such as ‘Vienna’ and ‘Dancing with Tears in My Eyes’, Midge has worked tirelessly behind the scenes, responsible for memorable videos for hits by the Fun Boy Three and Phil Lynott, theme music for Top of the Pops and famous TV advertising campaigns, as well as many other TV, theatre and film music credits. In his revealing, intimate and often opinionated autobiography, Midge talks candidly about his side of the story of Band Aid and Live Aid. He details his rise to fame, including the money and rock ‘n’ roll perks that came with it, his collaborations with some of the greatest figures in music and the lessons he had to learn about the fickle world of the music business — lessons that reverberated through his life and occasionally brought him close to the edge.”
